No words minced


Usually ideas for emails/blog posts/whatever come to me really easily. For some reason this week has been really difficult to put into words. Let's try a haiku:

Boys almost baptized
Took family to the temple
Taught a new guy too

Well there you have it folks! That was my week! Hope you have a good one! Read your scriptures, say your prayers, go to church, and have a happy Valentine's day! Love you bye!

Exchanges in Seminole! Got to see Elder Murphy there (old wardie from the Village)

Borchers family temple trip! The boys are so excited to get dunked on Saturday!

PS: I've also been pondering these verses a lot lately. I've been striving to develop charity, but I think that it can always increase!

42 Wherefore, if a man have faith he must needs have hope; for without faith there cannot be any hope.
 43 And again, behold I say unto you that he cannot have faith and hope, save he shall be meek, and lowly of heart.
 44 If so, his faith and hope is vain, for none is acceptable before God, save the meek and lowly in heart; and if a man be meek and lowly in heart, and confesses by the power of the Holy Ghost that Jesus is the Christ, he must needs have charity; for if he have not charity he is nothing; wherefore he must needs have charity.
 45 And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
 46 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, if ye have not charity, ye are nothing, for charity never faileth. Wherefore, cleave unto charity, which is the greatest of all, for all things must fail—
 47 But charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever; and whoso is found possessed of it at the last day, it shall be well with him.

 48 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus Christ; that ye may become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure. Amen.
